Over the back fence

 

Our choko vines have slowly begun creeping over the corrugated iron back fences.

Love them or hate them, chokos were once a common sight growing over back fences, outdoor dunnies and chook houses.

Easy to grow, just one vine produces a bumper crop of (some would say tasteless) vegies.
